That rough stuff bro. Everybody worshiped Ed for darn near ten years or so, then one day its "fuck Ed Mcgee" If Mullins gets to come back once, Mcgee should get at shot at the title as well.

P.S Giant rules.

One thing I forgot in my reply to your post.

This; http://www.archive.org/details/eh2010-04-20.eh2010-04-20.aud.flac


Have you listened to this yet? If you haven't and you call yourself a hookah fan (or just an Ed phan) Dude, listen to this and tell me where they need Ed ?

A funny story, we're all setting 'round and the bowl comes to Ed, he refuses ,sez he's not a smoker, he's a breather" just arrogant, It's fucking EKOOSTIC HOOKAH, you don't have to make a crack like that, you politely pass to the next hookah head.
Yea Ed McGee, their lining up to see him.

Dig EH for what they are, sweet ass psychedelic, New Grass band, not a vehicle for Ed's arrogance. (or Mullins for that matter) Cliffy got a better gig, dig it! Dave and John has always had a rocky relationship. So this move by Dave and John to split doesn't surprise me, Just as EH move to drop Ed didn't surprise me either.

Yes, I have listened to 4/20. Agreed, Katz can take it away with or without Mullins or Mcgee. How about this for a crazy dream. Katz,Mullins,Mcgee,Sweeney,Lanese, and Phil equals Ekoostik Hookah. This station is now the most powerful force in the universe, I suggest we use it.

I'm glad to see we can agree on that one issue, thats a good start. Hookah has become a great part of my life going on fifteen years. Also sorry to be contradictive, however Weir played to villes back to back, 99, 2000.

See you at Hookahville and Gratefulfest.

My post may have come across as a lover slighted, As I said there are some Ed tunes that have everything for me. Especially TreeHouse and TeaRose, Swear to god, if it wasn't for tea rose playin @ H'ville, I don't think my wife and I would have ever made that eye contact, which has resulted in the best 10 years of my life.
And well John, that takes me way back like I said to almost 91, His music is everything McGee is not. you follow? Gritty, gambling' wild women, Where ed writes in Metaphors, John writes in reality.
It's a shame they haven't found true happiness as a band in years. I don't know, that's speaking as an outsider looking in. ( friends, no personal relationship since 97)

i never even heard what broke ed and the boys up, I can't imagine Ed leaving on his own accord, and I CA see Ed's diva personality getting in the way of musical creativity.

Hell maybe Dave wanted to bring Ed back into the fold and John had a hissy LOL I could see that scenario play out as well.
I run into Katz every once in awhile at the market here in this small town, maybe I'll ask him the next time I see him LOL (highly unlikely, but)

Sorry, just got fired from my shity corporate greed infested job. Went to the north country to see my Mama. Listened to Mullins last shows that fucking rocked ( even though he fucks up the lyrics to Gather Round ) - my first offical favorite tune by EH, followed by many others, the version still rocks, then he ends his career with EK ( maybe temporally ) with Party Girl which was fucking nice espicialy when and how you describe Mullins tunes for what they are. However, on the long journey north and back I listed to 04/03 and 04/20. Katisitik Hookah cant last without something special and unique happing whether its Mullins coming back stating momentary lapse for his leaving or Mcgee Mcgee, or both togetter. Katz wont be able to handle it alone much longer. Personal feeling on the current vibe.

Peace.

"Everybody worshiped Ed for darn near ten years or so"

Obviously not everybody, LOL

To start with I've been a hookah fan since 1991, the first hookahville was held in the Field behind my house, and I recall Ed's band Local Color playing that gig. It's not so much "F*&% Ed McGee" (i didn't say that)
But what I will say is his songs are bloated, and IMO not the direction EH will be going in the near-future.

Your song "Giant" is a perfect example, Now there are a few Ed tunz I can live with, Tree House, Tea Rose, Surround, Daffodils in Detroit (I think that's the name of it)
that would always get me boogieing.Then you know it's coming ....sure enough 12 verses of fucking Alexander, to be followed by 13 fucking verses of Alexander II (nothing original in those songs,they are plagiarized from Stephan Kings "IT" ) Jesus his ego is so huge its a wonder his head would fit on the stage.

That ego also got him a black eye at his 1st H'ville from Dubba, who didn't appreciate him talking shit about Mullins on his first big gig.

I stopped going to shows 'cause Ed's pretentious stage behavior really irked the hell out of me. I was up to my neck in that scene and can call Dave, Steve, Cliff, Eric and John friends. Ed brought nothing to the table except his ego, period. At least John and Dave could collaborate TOGETHER on a song. I can't recall ONE collaboration that Dave and Ed worked on together, Why do you think that is?

Hookah had 10 years with Ed and they did squat. (one jam w/ Weir) The Ed songs on Ohio Grown are pathetic, Your statement that "John got another shot ED should too" is wishful thinking, It was John and Dave's band to begin with, I don't think Ed can say that.
Mullins never needed Hookah to take him back, he is a great musician (his voice is hosed), and to quote him "has a guitar case full of songs" Hookah needed him to pull fans back that Ed drove away. So I don't know what split them up again, but I know this, Katz is the man, his songs reflect the roots of his life here in Ohio, they convey everything that EH represent. ED...not so much. 10 wasted years is what Ed's song mean to EH.
I was wondering about McGee so I followed up on his solo project "One Under" and Wow. That was bad!! Ed surely needs Sweeney to make his shit happen, and you know I don't think Sweeney was that into him, LOL I mean He isn't lobbying very hard to get Ed back,
I may be wrong about this (watch,I don't think I am) but as I stated before Dave Katz will be fine without either of them.

"There's a goldmine up on the mountain side but you're never gonna get, if you're never gonna try"

There would probably be no Back Seat. I do believe Mcgee and Katz co wrote that one. If you listen to the Ville that denotes first time played for Back Seat, Mcgee runs with the opening line " A dark and dusty room." Its real cool and I do believe that was the only time Mcgee sang any lyrics to the song. Strange isnt it. I think that one was a collaboration.
